ISPO Palestine in Collaboration with PCRF and P.O.A Jerusalem (the Palestinian Orthopaedic Association) organized a symposium on Pediatric Limb Deficiency on 27 October 2017 under the sponsorship of Beit Jala Pharmaceuticals.

The first of its kind, the symposium gathered professionals from different disciplines in the field of rehabilitation: surgeons, physicians,  prosthetists, orthotists and physiotherapists.

Some 80 professionals from around the West Bank working in governmental hospitals and rehabilitation centres addressed a variety of topics touching on various disciplines.

An exhibition featuring service providers of P&O services was organized in the framework of the symposium to increase awareness on existing P&O facilities. The exhibition further aimed to strengthen relationships between providers and orthopaedic doctors and to create a friendly professional competitive environment amongst service providers with a view to stimulating professionals in keeping pace with the latest technology developments in the rehabilitation field.
